Delicious Veggie Kabobs

June 18, 2016
This review is for the veggie portion of the kabobs and the creamy pesto. We didn't use chicken as I had other meat to use up. The veggie kabobs were delicious enough! I prepped them an hour in advance so they could sit in the marinade and soften up a bit before skewering and grilling them. (I'm sure broiling them would be fine too, but oh, that charcoal fire taste!) The creamy pesto was wonderful. I only had artichoke pesto on hand, but the sauce was very good. It was a perfect complement to the grilled veggies. Next time I will try the chicken and a basil pesto, but definitely grilled. Easy to do, easy to vary, and totally tasty.

We wanted to make it healthy (sans chickens) and it turned out GrEaT! Here's our new version: Veggie Chick’n Kebabs with Creamy Pesto Naan Sandwich Same ingredient list; just add: • Veggie chick’n nuggets; either from Whole Foods Service deli (amazing) or any brand you like • Naan bread or any type of pita, wrap etc. When veggies are done and cooled; slice and dice them. Combine all and serve inside naan bread wrap…. Notes: Veggie chick’n nuggets; either from Whole Foods Service deli (amazing)-- Call your Whole foods to see if they have these in their deli; most carry them but not every day; check first. Otherwise try: Crispy Gold’n Chik’n Nuggets By LightLife Veggie Patch Crispy Chik'n Nuggets Morningstar Farms®Chik'n Nuggets Gardein | Chick'n Strips/Cubes | Vegetarian Meat o o o Our delicious Chick'n Strips are a great vegetarian meat option for your favorite dishes.

Delicious grilled! We enjoyed the lemony zing of the marinade. We'll definitely make them again.

Nothing all that special. Sauce is good but that's all. If I make it again I won't bother with the added task of making the kebobs. Can just broil or grill without the trouble.

Served with corn on the cob and crusty bread. Was great and easy. Cooked on the grill--took a bit longer than expected but was very good.

I substituted 3 TB 0% plain greek yogurt for the 2 TB sour cream + 2 TB low fat plain yogurt & still enjoyed the pesto. I baked them in an oven but I imagine that they would work well on a grill. If possible, make your own pesto instead of a store-bought version. I would definitely make this again & the sauce could work well with other dishes.
